"I was truly moved to hear the story about a young woman who received critical dental help after one of our Chapter Liaisons discovered her trying to fix her dental issues on her own. Once this sweet high school girl received the help she desperately needed, she was able to attend her school dance with a brand new smile. Now, that's life-changing."
